This motherboard supports the latest Intel Bloomfield processors in LGA1366 package which has memory controller integrated to support 3-channel (6 DIMMs) DDR3 memory. Support Intel(R) QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) with system bus up to 6.4GT/s and a max bandwidth of up to 25.6GB/s. Intel Bloomfield processor is one of the most powerful and energy efficient CPU in the world.
The Intel X58 Express Chipset is the latest chipset designed to support latest Intel Core i7 Processors and Intel’s next generation system interconnect interface, Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI), providing improved performance by utilizing serial point-to-point links, allowing increased bandwidth and stability. It also supports up to 36 PCI Express 2.0 lanes providing better graphics performance.
This motherboard supports the latest PCIe 2.0 devices for double speed and bandwidth which enhances system performance.
The P6T breaks the boundaries to bring you the multi-GPU choice of either SLI or CrossFireX. The motherboard features a dedicated graphics engine on the most powerful Intel X58 platform to optimize PCIe allocation in multiple GPU configurations. Expect a brand-new gaming style you’ve never experienced before!
With power efficiency so important to operating temperatures, ASUS 8+2 phase VRM design (8-phase to vCore; 2-phase to vDRAM/QPI controller inside CPU) leads the industry with its 96% power efficiency. High quality power components such as low RDS (on) MOSFETs for minimum switching loss & lower temperatures, Ferrite core chokes with lower hysteresis loss, and high quality Japanese-made conductive polymer capacitors all add up to ensure longer component life and lower power loss—creating more energy efficiency.
Without BIOS setups, the ASUS exclusive Drive Xpert is ideal for anyone who needs to secure data on their hard drives or enhance hard drive performances without the hassles of complicated configurations. With Drive Xpert’s user-friendly graphical user interface, users can easily arrange hard drive backups or enhance their hard drive transfer rates-making sure that data is looked after every moment, every day.
